Gauteng, Pretoria: De Rust Caravan Park


Visit De Rust for peace and tranquillity – A resort that does not permit children, caravan rallies, parties or other noise that would intrude on your enjoyment of the pristine bushveld. Our resort is well run and supervised by the owner and staff provide a friendly, clean and well maintained environment in which to quietly experience the African finfoot swimming past you on the river or to add 6 of the seven kingfisher species, including the half collard kingfisher to your personal birding list. A 500yr old Wild Olive and a 450 yr old Karee line the start to the nature trail. Walks early in the morning will reward you with wild flowers, tortoises, butterflies and other wildlife as well as a glimpse through the trees of magnificent kudu or startled eyes of impala.

On the banks of the Pienaarsriver, and within the BIG 5 Reserve, De Rust is a peaceful, spacious caravan park, shaded by beautiful indigenous trees. Just 35km from Pretoria, this is the perfect place to come to for a peaceful appreciation of untouched bushveld. Part of the Finfoot Conservancy and home to The Big 5, De Rust also boasts impressive birdlife. To date 280 bird species have been identified, including the rare African Finfoot, the half-collared kingfisher and the whitebacked night heron. Enjoy the 7km Mountain Biking around the conservancy or have a game drive or guided hike arranged.
